    It's in the nature of a game cock to fight. You are scum if u fight a few roosters. It's fine if u go out an get an abortion kill a little baby its alright. All the drugs an drug related crimes, people getting robed by these dope heads. The cops don't have time to go get these dope heads there out arresting cock fighters for doing what these cocks are meant to do !!!!! Nothing they r forced to do they can quit anytime they want unlike that unborn baby it don't get to decide !!!! These chickens at Kentucky fried chicken do get a fighting chance

    It's tragic that we don't have the same protection for the unborn......while I have the utmost respect for the office of the Governor I'm certainly disappointed in his decision not respect human life...........

      This is about Chickens, not your need to control other women's bodies. Abortion activists are the worst.

    Why mess with cockfighters when we should be getting all the drug heads. Law enforcement has their priorities screwed up

      The liberals could care less about the drug infestation in this state, but let an animal be injured and they will demand the death penalty, and it will be brought to a vote.

    It's a shame to see animals used in this manner. Unfortunately after being used for fighting, they have to be put down. The become so scared and aggressive, that they can't be house with other animals in the same cage.
    The people who arrange, allow, and bet on this, should face the maximum penalties.
